Dance Legend Sahara Crystal #16 Amethyst — Dance Legend Sahara Crystal #51 Platinum — Zoya Carter

Today I have a pretty pic heavy post to get to.  I used Dance Legend Sahara Crystal polishes in #16 Amethyst and #51 Platinum for an accent.  I also have a quick comp of #16 Amethyst and Zoya Carter further down the post.


So all of these polishes are “textured”.  Meaning they feel a bit rough if you don’t topcoat them.  All of my pictures are without topcoat. I will add that tomorrow and do a quick update to the blog.

There are some of you that can’t stand the feeling of a textured polish.  I’m not one of those people. I don’t mind it at all.  I do usually end up putting a topcoat on though, just to bring out all the sparkly goodness. Kind of like Matte polishes. I don’t mind the matte look, but usually topcoat brings out a lot of hidden shimmer or sparkle.

I bought Dance Legend #16 Amethyst from a blog sale a long time ago. The cap was broken when I received it, so I had to decant into an empty bottle I had laying around.  I don’t think this color is available anymore sadly.

So, let’s start with the bottle shots.  Look at all that sparkle in Platinum…

I thought that #16 Amethyst was possibly close to Zoya Carter, so I put 2 coats of Carter on my thumb.  You will see, the sparkle is the same color, but the base colors are a bit different. First a couple of close-ups of Zoya Carter…

And here you can see the difference in the base colors…
